I'm standing on the path to a light that I call my home
Built with a hammer and a lover, of hope and stone
With a window that can sing
And a door that cannot shut shut out everything
And a bath that is watching our love just drain away
(That's what they say)

This house is rotten, it's rotten to the core
This house I built, with a lover and a saw
This house is rotten, it's rotten to the core
This house is rotten

Under a roof that has heard one thousand lies
And a bed that has tripped us up too many times
Not everything is worth saying
Not everything is worth saving
Not everything is worth anything
(Or so I've heard)

This house is rotten, it's rotten to the core
This house I built, with a lover and a saw
This house is rotten, it's rotten to the core
This house is rotten

This house is rotten, it's rotten to the core
This house is rotten, though I've said it all before
This house is rotten, it's rotten to the core
This house is rotten

I want to knock you down
I want to raise you to the ground
I want to shake you 'round
I want to watch you blazing down

This house is rotten
This house is rotten
This house is rotten
This house is rotten
